Aluminum Clad Vinyl Tilt and Slide Doors

Top Performance at Affordable Prices

Aluclad Vinyl Systems

Our aluminum clad vinyl tilt and slide doors feature high quality construction, energy efficiency and flexibility. They combine the functionality of tilt and turn windows with an improved sliding mechanism. This allows them to both slide freely as well as tilt inwards for ventilation. They are the perfect solution for maximizing sunlight and enjoying great views of the outdoors. Whether replacement or new construction, aluclad vinyl represents the best combination of price, looks and performance.

Overview & Advantages

Aluminum excels at both standing up to the elements and maintaining its great appearance with minimal upkeep. Vinyl (or uPVC), probably the most widely used material today, boasts excellent insulation and functionality. Together, they provide a premium, modern look for your facade, great energy efficiency, and little upkeep, all at a budget-friendly price. Custom built to whatever size your project calls for, they come with fine German made hardware and can be opened effortlessly.

Their advantages include:

  • Outstanding thermal performance
  • High security with tough exterior aluminum shell
  • Faster and easier to slide than standard patio doors
  • Available in the entire RAL color range
  • Weatherproof with little maintenance required
  • No inswing or outswing leaf taking up space.

 

Neuffer offers a range of aluclad vinyl frames as a base for your sliding door, each with a unique set of insulation, security and aesthetic features. The standard Twinset features double glazing and good insulation. The Energeto series is designed for maximum energy savings and includes triple glazing as standard.

Designed & Built Just for You

White vinyl is a thing of the past. While it cannot be painted directly like wood, vinyl can be outfitted with a range of colored and decorative foils at the factory whether in solid tones or  patterns to mimic woodgrain and aluminum.

This not only gives you even more options, but has the added benefit of further protecting the exterior frame from weather wear and minor scratches. Finally, you have the choice of dual colors, one for the inside and one for the outside.

Barrier-free

Low threshold or barrier-free flush thresholds are also available for your project. Whether to assist the elderly, prevent children from tripping or to just make life a little easier, they are always a great idea for future-proofing new construction and renovation projects. Barrier-free lift and slide doors are produced in accordance with ISO regulations and are yet another advantage of sliding patio doors nowadays. 

U-values & Thermal Performance

With glass comprising most of the overall sliding door surface, it is important to choose the appropriate glazing for your desired energy-efficiency needs. We offer both double and triple glazing options, warm edge spacers and optional argon gas filled spaces between panes.

The distances between panes can also be adjusted to provide larger gaps capable of better insulation.

Strength & Security

Large glass surfaces can be a tempting target for intruders. This is why Neuffer offers high security doors with a multitude of options for bolstering their security. Ground level doors should be toughened and fitted with some or all of the following options.

  • Multipoint locking
  • Locking handles with key
  • Push button locking handles
  • Shootbolts
  • Concealed hinges
  • Laminated and impact resistant safety glass

Laminated safety glass should be installed on the outermost pane at least in order to provide an added layer of security and make breaking the glass difficult. It is typically found in vehicle windshields, storm windows and other areas requiring impact resistance and produces no dangerous shards when broken. For ground level doors, laminated safety glass should be installed on the outer pane at a minimum.

In addition, the multi-chamber profiles of vinyl frames are extremely difficult to pierce or break. Roller shutters are another option which can be installed and offer the benefits of improving security, insulation and privacy simultaneously.
